Peter Erskine Trio Box Set of 1990s Work Released

Peter Erskine Trio: As It WasThe four albums released by the Peter Erskine Trio between 1992 and 1997 are now available as a box set, As It Was, through ECM’s Old and New Masters Series.

The trio featured drummer/leader Erskine, Swedish double bassist Palle Danielsson (known for his 1970s-era work with Kieth Jarrett) and British pianist John Taylor, who was also the trio’s primary composer.

The set features the albums, You Never Know, As It Is, Time Being and Juni.

“Without trying to be, we were a truly unique group. I’ve heard nothing like it before or since,” Erskine said.

As It Was is available as a four-CD set and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
